Mark your calendars:

Today, September 27, 2014, was the last day ever that broadcast TV airs Saturday morning cartoons. It's truly the end of an era, but do I really miss Hong Kong Phooey and Speed Racer? Not really, but that's not the point.

The point is that it's yet one more thing that my kids have no idea what I'm talking about when I say "saturday morning cartoons".

I heard about it on Reddit, and as a metaphoric whimper, there is NO 'major' website reporting it (according to Google at this moment, anyway). A Wikipedia page was linked as the source, that's how dry the whole thing is.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vortexx was a block of cartoons on The CW and they've decided to replace it with live action.

"The block came to an end on September 27, 2014, and was replaced the following week with a live-action E/I block from Litton Entertainment named One Magnificent Morning, marking the end of traditional Saturday morning children's programming on broadcast television."

That's all, folks.

Schuyler recorded a bunch of his music and upped it to Soundcloud.

Now most of the time when a parent says "This is really good!" about something their kid does, they're just being supportive. The thing is that this isn't the case here. As his current producer and agent, I'm not supportive in the slightest. . . just ask him, he'll tell you.

That said, this shit is really good.

People are fucking morons.

Politically correct people bug the shit out of me. If what I'm saying pisses someone off, then more likely they are pissed off about what I said as it applies to them. But in an effort to save face in their own head, they deflect the conversation onto the specific words (as opposed to the content of the message) as being offensive. When really it's their own thoughts offending their sense of self. Who would want to admit that.

Conversely...

People that allow politically correct types in to begin with bug the shit out of me. Have your opinions, have some confidence, and have some stones. When someone attempts to be a bully-on-words and attack softly with politically correct bs, stand your ground, tell them that the content of your opinion and not the method of the delivery, is just as valid as their opinion that you should change the method of delivery. 

Especially...
If it's for "Knowledge of Man". Knowledge, more than anything, can better ones station. Opinion that hinders or destroys knowledge is, IMO evil in verbal form. It is nothing but self serving while reducing the ability of others to increase their station.

Which leads me to the tip of this tirade... read this article.

Possible "first meeting" between NAACP and KKK. after almost a century, why would it be the first? Because the NAACP is a reasonable organization with reasonable goals and reasonable methods and the KKK, traditionally, is none of those. And reasonable people expect little to nothing from unreasonable people.

Was it a waste of time? No. It's the kind of thing that you throw up against the wall to see if it sticks, especially when there's nothing to lose and everything to gain. 

The end result was that it was a learning experience for the individuals. They either learned something new, or they confirmed what they already knew.

Here's a video from the postgame of Bennett's 11th bday party. Apparently we used trick candles on his cake. Clearly, he was no worse for the wear.

And here we are 10, countem 10, years later. Despite all the angst and drama, he survived it as a single contiguous organism. At 21 he is as good a person as I'd ever dreamed he could be.

Love you, dudey. Rock on.

(Oh btw... that's 3 yo val in the background... sounding like DeLenn lol)

My experiences so far when listening to a Bruno Mars song: "Hmm. This sounds like a song I should like, but for some reason I don't." Not sure why. And when I mentioned this to my daughter, she said she felt the same way.
